Edinburgh girl cuts off hair for charity

A NINE-year-old girl from Gullane, East Lothian, has raised £900 for The Teapot Trust Charity by cutting-off her hair and, in the process, helped provide wigs for children who have lost their own hair after cancer treatment.

Isla donated her hair to make wigs for children with cancer

Loretto Junior School pupil, Isla Yong not only had seven inches of hair cut-off to raise funds for her mother’s charity, The Teapot Trust, but also donated her hair for cancer charity, The Little Princess Trust.

The Teapot Trust is dedicated to providing professional art therapy in a medical environment to children coping with chronic illness and the Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs for children with hair loss.
